Someday, someday I'll write something so devastating and heartwarming describing how beautiful June's story is, but until then this will have to do.
June Elbus is a 14 year old girl, her only friend is her uncle Finn, they're fans of the medieval era, any boots, candelabra, and leather-bound books really. Only problem is Uncle Fin is dying of AIDS in 1987.
This is essentially a relationships book, June and her family, June and her friends, June and the universe. She's such a sensitive beautiful person and for those 360 pages you see her worlds through her eyes, she's heartbroken and grieve struck but also too oblivious to what she still have and you wait for her to catch up to you figure out. And June doesn't disappoint..
